2. He is a good writer.

He has a doctorate in chemistry from a top 10 school. His lab has been funded through NIH and NSF since we came here from his post doctoral program. He is a very good grant writer and has been published quite often in peer reviewed journals. He is almost 50 and we still owe tons of student loans believe it or not. He has done some consulting work in China in the past few years. He might be able to do that again this year in the summer as a funding option. He should have enough left for partial summer salary this summer.

Thank you for your suggestions and for caring about our situation, when we first started going for the PhD it seemed like the right path for him, clearly we were wrong...
